This spectacular Mediterranean home is located on the coveted street of Brightwaters in the highly desired neighborhood of Snell Isle just minutes away from downtown St Petersburg. Located on an open deep-water canal with accommodations for a 55' boat or sailboat, this is truly waterfront living at its finest. Lush, tropical landscaping, a paved circular drive, and a large stone fountain set the stage as you enter. Enter the double wooden doors to the great living room with soaring 30' ceilings and gleaming travertine flooring throughout. The downstairs is designed for easy entertaining with an open kitchen and dining concept. The kitchen has been fully remodeled in 2016 with new cabinetry, countertops, and appliances. The expansive island has a Thermador 6 burner gas cooktop with grill and two Sub Zero coolers. There is also a double convection oven, two dishwashers, a warming drawer, a wet bar, and a dinette area overlooking the pool. The glass-enclosed wine room can hold up to 1,000 wine bottles! A double-sided gas fireplace seamlessly connects the kitchen to the living room. In the cool weather, open the French doors off of the dining area to another courtyard with a water feature. The downstairs guest suite has 2 sets of French Doors that open to the patio as well as an en-suite bath and master closet. There is also a separate office located just off the front entrance. Upstairs you will find a spacious owner's suite with a newly renovated dressing area and closet with a built-in wardrobe and renovated spa-like bathroom complete with a soaking tub, dual vanity, makeup area, and walk-in shower. There are 2 additional bedrooms each with its own ensuite full bathroom (one bedroom was opened up and can easily be converted back to a bedroom with a wall to bring back to a 4th bedroom with a balcony) and a separate loft space. The backyard is a Florida paradise and extremely private with rows of palm trees and lush landscaping. The newly renovated pool patio includes a built-in grill and a sparkling saltwater pool with a Pebble-tech finish and a heated spa. The composite dock has a boat power center, a jet ski lift, a kayak launch, and accommodations for a large vessel. Want to see incredible sunsets? Enjoy those from the dolphin watch tower (3rd level) or on 2 covered patios. Additionally, there is a whole-house natural gas generator and 3 HVACs all updated (2016, 2019, 2021).
